Program 1

The Liberty School Program

The Liberty School Program is an innovative, educational, enrichment program at the NTC Promenade, the Arts and Cultural District.  The Liberty School offers at-risk public school students an off-campus year-long learning experience during one school-day each week that enriches standards-based curriculum with project-based learning strategies using the resources of the 40+ arts, culture and fitness organizations located in the seven renovated buildings at NTC Promenade.
 
Currently, the programs serves 3rd graders from Dewey Elementary (children of military families); 7th and 8th graders from ALBA (Alternative Learning, Behavior and Attitude), City Schools' alternative program for students who have been expelled from their regular school; and students from three Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) classes: Linda Vista, Clairemont and Metro.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
